The Learning Academy Partnership (South West) is the admissions authority for all schools within our Trust.
The policies below detail the admission arrangements for our school and should be read in conjunction with the Primary and In Year Co-ordinated Schemes and other agreed policies of Devon Local Authority. All policies and procedures seek to comply with the requirements of the School Admissions Code. There will be 25 reception places available in September 2022.
Our Admissions Policies
You can find our admissions policies below – we review the school policy annually and may make changes if we feel this would be in the best interests of the school and our community.
Each academic year has its own policy document, with details about how to apply for a place in our school from the start of Reception through to Year 6. These are our determined policies. If you have any comments regarding the policies, you can contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applying to come here
Once you decide you would like a place in reception or at any other time after this, you must make a formal application, which can be made online at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline.
For the normal round intake into our school, children are offered places to start in Reception at the beginning of the September term after their fourth birthday. Children who are admitted to a vacancy at any time after this point are called ‘In-Year’ Admissions.
